BC’s Mount Washington is open in full… and it’s only mid-December.

“We’ve been fortunate enough to open the entire mountain this early only a handful of times in our resort history,” says resort spokesperson Brent Curtain. “We are experiencing snow depths and conditions that you would normally see in February. It’s been a phenomenal start to the season.”

Mount Washington Alpine Resort will open the Outback, the mountain’s steep and deep backside, this weekend. The move will give skiers and snowboarders access to 100 percent of the mountain’s alpine terrain.

In addition to alpine, the resort also plans on opening an additional 27kms of its Nordic terrain, bringing the Nordic Centre to full mid-winter operation in only the second week of December.
